The form with which a jazz tune is typically played in a small ensemble bears a resemblance to classical sonata form. Both forms start by introducing melodic themes, have a section dedicated to melodic development, and conclude by restating the original themes. Sonata form, however, has some additional elements that aid in the creation of a melodically cohesive work while maintaining harmonic interest. Although some works have been composed that combine the idea of a sonata with jazz, many of them do not use sonata form while retaining a jazz style. In Jazzonata: Bringing the Jazz Tune into Full Sonata Form a new jazz composition is presented that uses sonata form. Other “Jazz Sonatas”, as well as sonatas written by jazz artists, that are published in the form of a score are examined and compared in terms of form and style.
